Café Scientifique – Climate change & coastal flooding – relocate before it’s too late?

Dr Luciana Esteves will be at Cafe Scon Tuesday 2 November from 7.00pm until 8.30pm.

For an increasing number of people, coastal flooding and erosion are a real threat to property, the local economy and, in some cases, life. With the effects of climate change, this threat is quickly growing. Should coastal communities at risk be relocated before they are forced from their homes? Or could engineering and nature-based solutions provide the defences they need?

Join Café Scientifique to discover the challenges faced by coastal communities in an uncertain climate future, and what society could do to address them.
